Found February 20, 2014 on Diehardsport:
Every body remembers LeBron James’ ‘Decision’, in which James announced his Miami Heat destination during a 1-hour ESPN telecast. Obviously, some more than others. Bob Ley took to Twitter on Wednesday to come to the defense of his employer and call out the 29-year-old. Help me here, @KingJames. "Don't watch ESPN." – except when you're the focus of a 1 hr show annoucing your free agent destination? — Bob Ley (@BobLeyESPN) February 19, 2014 Here’s what Ley’s referencing: LeBron James giving Tony Romo some advice: “Just don’t care what everybody thinks,” he said. “If you care about your craft and at the end of the day if you went out there and you gave it everything you had and you laid it out on the line for your teammates, you can sleep comfortably at night. Don’t watch ESPN and all these so-called ‘everyone knows what to do that ain’t never put on a uniform, trying to tell you what to do’ [shows]” [Guyism] The post Bob Ley roasts LeBron James over ‘Don’t watch ESPN’ comments appeared first on Diehardsport.

LeBron James calls decision to leave Cleveland/Akron best thing to ever happen to him

When he left Cleveland in the summer of 2010, LeBron James tore out the hearts of Clevelanders (and caused the destruction of plenty of No. 23-emblazoned memorabilia).

Lebron James "texts" NBA commissioner Adam Silver

So Lebron James texts, and emails the boss? Not his owner, but the guy who makes the choices in the NBA. I never imagined, that James had that kind of relationship with new commissioner Adam Silver. I can see Lebron shooting a text to the commissioner about a foul call. He's already a big cry baby, and he's on the Mount Rushmore of floppers. ESPN"LeBron and I have had...

LeBron James: The Decision was best thing to ever happen to me

LeBron James is well past “The Decision” program from the summer of 2010 that turned sports fans and the media against him.

LeBron Buys Mom Gloria a Porsche For Her Bday (Photo)

I think most of us wish we could do this for our mom at some point. LeBron James got his mom a Porsche Panamera for her birthday and put the pictures of her getting it on Instagram. What a nice gift that comes right after he wrote the open letter thanking his absentee father.

LeBron James struts after monster dunk against Thunder

The debate over who should be this year’s MVP has gone back and forth between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. At the beginning of the season James was the popular choice, and now just over mid-way through the year Durant is dominating the conversation. Tonight, LeBron’s Heat are taking Durant’s Thunder in Oklahoma City. LeBron started off the game with a dominant 1st quarter...

LeBron James Says That Heat-Thunder Is Not A Rivalry Compared To UNC-Duke

For all you folks who think watching Kevin Durant and the Thunder throw down against King James and his famous Heat teammates is one of the best rivalry games in sports, LeBron himself begs to differ. In pre-game comments, James says it’s hard to call this matchup a rivalry when you see how vicious the rivalry between Duke and UNC can get. He goes as far to say that there needs...

Joe Philbin, Lebron James, and Why The Media Is Getting It Wrong

OPINION: You know, as a sports fan, a budding media member, and a generally-somewhat-but-certainly-not-all-the-time upstanding human, I am utterly exasperated with this coverage of the Jonathan Martin Saga. I call it a “saga” of course, because like our most famous Saga (think a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away), it was intriguing […]

Space Jam 2: Potential Monstars

It was recently reported by Deadspin that a sequel to Space Jam was in the works and it would star none other than LeBron James. Many people, including myself, think this would be a terrible idea. An idea such as this would only fuel more LeBron James comparisons to Michael Jordan. False Rumors It turns out these rumors are false. ESPN Sports Business Reporter, Darren Rovell, and...

Heat Scorch Thunder As James Leaves Game Due To Probable Broken Nose

In terms of the game itself, there isn’t much to talk about. While there should be, seeing as last night marked the return of Russell Westbrook, the Heat pretty much dominated from start to finish. The Thunder started with a 4-0 advantage that would be the last one they’d see. Once the Heat took over, it was a done deal. Chris Bosh celebrates via high-five. Bosh finished with...

LeBron Posterizes Serge Ibaka, Breaks Nose In Process (Video)

LeBron James is a beast, and I’ll never question his toughness. James posterized the hell out of Serge Ibaka and withstood a brutal blow to the nose.  I’m not sure if his nose is broken, but James was bleeding everywhere.

Why the NBA Slam Dunk Contest was a complete failure

Photo Credit: Sportsoutwest.com Lets face it guys and gals, the NBA All Star Weekend Dunk Contest was horrible! I would definitely hope that LeBron James competes next year in Madison Square Garden to at least make things interesting. What was wrong with it, you may ask. Well, for starters, the way the format was set up was just cluttered, tacky, and just all wrong. I understand...

NBA & NFL Mount Rushmore

Because of LeBron's James' comments regarding his belief that he deserves to be on the Mount Rushmore of the NBA, he sparked a great basketball debate of the top 4 NBA players in the history of the league.  Not only that but Google must have set an all time record for Mount Rushmore searches. I wrote an article yesterday with my all time Mount Rushmore: Michael Jordan, Magic...
